    Hello Everyone We're new to fish parenting and need some help. We bought a little Betta from a fish shop last week. When we got him home we noticed some white discolouration around his mouth. We're wondering if this is a sign of a disease such as ich or similar. Or maybe the white colouring is...

    Hey all, I bought 4 cpds yesterday (1 male 3 females) to add to my 10 gallon tank with 3 cpds. I acclimated them for about an hour before adding them into the tank. So this morning, I noticed the new male, probably the biggest and most brightly coloured of my cpds, was at the surface of the...

    Hi New to the hubby. When I started my tank I bought 4 guppies and it seems they are dying of the same cause, but one at a time (with nearly a month in between). The only change in fish I can explain is: My guppies are black. If you look closely at the healthy guppy's eyes some kind of white...

    Hey, so I have been feeding fluval bug bites for a few weeks and quite a few of my fish seem to be getting bloated or constipated. I heard nothing but good reviews about this stuff so I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem? Fish that are bloating is one glowlight tetra and the 3...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    For the past couple of weeks my Olive Nerite snails have been unable to keep their grip when climbing vertically. They might make it an inch or so, then just fall onto their shells. Normally I keep them in a separate container that I clean daily with algae wafers for them to eat, while waiting...

    Hi all, I have two black mollies who have these odd white patches on them. The male has a half black and half translucent white flake drifting on his head. It looks kind of like a big scale is half attached. Around where this 'scale' would have been is a somewhat white lining. He also has...

    Hey everyone! I have a juvenile EBJD that seems to be really sick :( Initially I thought he had internal parasites but now I'm not sure. Could it be bacterial? It started with him swimming erratically and crashing into things violently. Then he would come out at feeding time but wouldn't eat...

    Hey guys! I have a juvenile EBJD that seems to be dying :( Initially I thought it was parasites but I'm not sure anymore, could it be bacterial? He isn't responding to meds. At first he would swim erratically and crash into decor and the tank glass violently. Then he started hiding a lot and...

    I have a pearl gourami that has kind of a milky discoloration on his head. It's not always the exact same, sometimes it clears up a bit but then comes back. I had a redtailed shark in the tank (now removed) that would bully gourami. The gourami took to hiding in a small spot in the the roots of...

    Hello! I've followed this forum for a long time but never posted. This specific CPD has been in my tank for about 3 weeks now. Recently I noticed it swimming quite weirdly. Its lost a lot of color, but I don't see any visible signs of issues (like ich, or a fungus). Now he just kind of bobs...

    YouTube Link to my fish. Took the video in slow-mo so you can more clearly see the fins. The specific fins I'm concerned with are the tail and anal fins. The tail fin appears to be a complete fin but is clamped to more of a rectangle rather than a rounded fin. The anal fin almost looks like a...

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice. If you could help me out at all that would be great. I just saved a betta from one of my coworkers. He was being kept in a 2 gallon, unheated, very dirty tank. He has a more-than-mild case of fin rot. I have a 5 gallon currently cycling for him but it...
